Super useful, almost invisible

There are times when you just want to write a note to yourself. Like on a piece of scrap paper lying around on your desk. Which you then throw away because you think it is trash. But then you really need it, and if they haven’t picked up the garbage, you can go digging for it. But if you have a Mac with SwiftText, you’ve got a vitural piece of scrap paper that is instantly available, that saves itself away, and that doesn’t do much else. Perfect. Plus, if you want to share the note via iMessage or email or what have you, you can just select the text and use the system share services.

Essential tool

Useful for so many things. The equivalent of a central, single piece of paper that I can hide when needed and recall with a key combo. I have ADHD and autism-related executive dysfunction and SwiftText is essential to my work. I keep a list of what I have to do each day in it, compose brief emails in it, store text that I've cut from somewhere else that needs to go to a new home, etc. It is extremely reliable. Note that it does not have advanced text formatting - if you underline or bold something it underlines or bolds all text in the window - but if you do not need those features, it is perfect.

Simple Yet

I am really enjoying this app, as it allows me to take a quick note that is immeidately available as I swipe between monitor views.

However, there is one request I must make towards to the developer. Please add the ability to either Select All and/or Clear content. Due to this lacking feature, I was forced to scroll the entire field in efforts to select then delete information that was no longer needed - an inconvenience to an otherwise convenient application.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your review. Note that you can quickly delete the entire contents by hitting Command-A (Select All) and then Delete. We will look at whether there is a good way to include this menu item in a future release.
